EDIT: This camera is SOLD.
I’m one of the early believers who have put off delivery until now. We were waiting for a project that never materialized. We don’t need a Red camera for the current projects that we have, so as much as I would like to be a Red owner, it just doesn’t make sense to spend that much money just to have the camera sit on the shelf. So I have decided to put my camera up for sale and hope that it finds a happy new owner that can put it to good use.
I have not yet taken delivery, so everything is brand new. But since I have a low number, the camera can be shipped right away (of course, taking into account the backlog constraints at Red). This is what I currently have on order, but that can be changed to match your needs:
Red One body, serial # 515
Basic production pack
Red power pack
5.6” LCD screen
Red drive, 320GB
I’ll also throw in the original Red medallion with the serial number.
I also have a Birger Nikon (or Canon) mount on order, if you’re interested. It comes with a free remote control. You can have my reservation for the price of the down payment I made.
As you may know, the Red 1-year warranty is not transferable (see Red.com for details). I am willing to assist with any warranty issues with Red. Or, I can take $500 off the selling price, and you can send the camera back to Red to be re-certified and receive a 90-day warranty.
If you’re interested, please PM me with an offer and your contact info. Serious inquiries only, please. No offer below the retail price will be considered. On the other hand, I’m not necessarily looking for the highest bidder, either, especially if it’s insincere. I want a deal that’s beneficial to both parties.
Please note that shipping costs will be additional to your bid.
